History and Psychology

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both History and Psychology. The History and Psychology combination offers students the opportunity to develop a lifelong appreciation of the historical past as well as its influence on the societies of today and tomorrow. In History you will study the way humans have always tried to organise their lives – physically and conceptually, individually and together. Such an appreciation of the past is essential to understanding where we are today and how we are attempting to shape the future, and even societies in the very distant past can be highly relevant. This involves thinking about human motivations in which psychology plays an important role. Studying Psychology involves exploring and researching why humans feel, think and act in the ways that they do. You will learn about what the latest psychology research, including studies published by our own friendly and approachable staff, tells us about human behaviour from social, developmental, biological and cognitive perspectives. We will show you how to design and conduct your own psychological studies in our well-equipped labs using a range of techniques including interviews, surveys and experiments. You’ll develop the sort of enquiring, open-minded and creative attitude which employers are looking for, leading to potential careers options in a range of fields including teacher, librarian, archivist, heritage manager, barrister, solicitor, journalist or researcher.
